Philosophy from the Mud by Erik Quisling is a unique book that has an unusual mixture of three fables and some rules to help you through your life. The fables tell the stories of three creatures. The first one is about a worm that leads through life trying to figure things out. The second one follows the story of an ant that goes on some adventures. The third one is about a clan that feels lost in life before finding meaning. Between the fables, the writer explains what he calls Masterful Effortlessness. The philosophy has five laws that the writer mentions and explains. They help you do things effortlessly and reach what you want in life.

I really love the uniqueness of the book. It's one-of-a-kind. The effortless philosophy was really inspiring and made me think of many things. The fables carried a lot of life lessons. They are put in the form of simple drawings with a few sentences. They don't take long to read, but they sure will take a long time to think of. The writer could deliver the messages so sincerely that I could even feel the struggle of the ant or the pain of the worm sometimes throughout the stories.

There was nothing I disliked about the book. There might be a few things that I didn't understand. There was an empty page after every illustrated page of the fables. There was also some repetition in some of the illustrations. I didn't get the point, but I believe there's one. I appreciate the writer's ability to introduce complicated life principles through those fables that look simple but aren't simple at all.

The book provides a unique experience that I totally enjoyed. Even the things I didn't fully understand didn't take away from my experience. The book received exceptional editing. I didn't notice any errors or mistakes. Therefore, I rate Philosophy from the Mud by Erik Quisling five out of five stars.

I recommend the book to people who can appreciate differences in art and enjoy unusual experiences. I also recommend it to people who are interested in improving their lives through the Effortlessness philosophy.
